BARCELONA star Andres Iniesta is reportedly planning to leave the Nou Camp in the summer despite his lifetime contract because of Philippe Coutinho’s expected arrival at the club. Iniesta has written his name into Barca folklore since making his debut back in 2002, racking up 649 first-team appearances and helping them win 29 trophies. And he has a place at the club for life after putting pen to paper on contract which will run until he decides it’s time to hang up his boots. Iniesta has appeared in 14 of Barcelona’s 17 La Liga games this season, as well as starting four of their Champions League group stage fixtures. The latest reports from Spain suggest he is looking to head through the exit door though as speculation over Liverpool star Coutinho continues to swirl.
